'True Blood' Recap: Sookie Realizes She Unknowingly Infected Bill With Hep-v, Sarah Newlin Reveals Hep-v Cure

27 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sarah Newlin revealed that her blood contains the cure for Hep-v and Sookie found out she is a Hep-v carrier and unknowingly infected Bill in True Blood’s “Karma.”

After discovering Hep-v veins on his chest, Bill (Stephen Moyer), stunned, looks online to find a lawyer willing to work with vampires and goes in to settle his affairs. Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), home from her tryst with Jason, overhears Bill’s phone call, and clearly hears him saying he has contracted Hep-v, but when he passes her on his way out, he plays it cool, so she lets him go.

Eric And Pam Work With The Yakonomo Corporation

In Texas, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) are taken by the Yakuza to Yakonomo Corporation headquarters, where the president of American operations, Gus Jr. (Will Yun Lee), confronts the two about Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). He wants to »

Recap: 'True Blood' - 'Karma'

27 July 2014 8:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight’s episode brings Will Yun Lee, formerly of “Witchblade” and the ill-fated “Bionic Woman” reboot, on board as Katsurou “Mr. Gus, Jr.” Ryouichi. He’s the son of the CEO of the Yokonomo Corporation and the head of its North American division. The Yakuza forces capture Eric and Pam in mid-rampage and deliver them to Gus Jr., who shares Eric’s vengeful hatred of Sarah Newlin; after all, by tainting the Tru Blood supply and creating the Hep-v epidemic, she bankrupted his company. The vampire and the businessman-gangster come to an agreement to share information and split the work: Eric, who knows that Sarah has an infected vampire sister living in Dallas, will kill her, and Mr. Gus will take the body. I would assume that, after a quick stop at the taxidermist, he’d have the corpse stuffed and mounted in the lobby of the Yokonomo corporate headquarters, »

Film Review: ‘Make Your Move’

19 April 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“East-Meets-West Side Story” might have made a clunkier but more interesting title for “Make Your Move,” a slick, disposable soap opera about a poor white boy and a spirited Korean girl who fall in love despite hailing from rival corners of Brooklyn’s club scene. Wringing yet another variation on the boy-hoofer-meets-girl-hoofer formula that fueled his screenplays for “Save the Last Dance” and “Step Up,” writer-director Duane Adler weaves an overly tangled web of resentment, betrayal and thuggish violence around his attractive two leads (“Dancing With the Stars” champ Derek Hough and pop star BoA), both of whom display almost enough fancy footwork to overcome the cliches they’ve been saddled with. Theatrical biz will be limited, but this amiable time-filler could have ancillary legs, particularly among the Asian-American audiences being targeted.

A genial, tap-dancing ex-con from New Orleans, Donny (Hough) decides to skip out on his parole and hightail it to Brooklyn, »

'Intelligence' premiere: Sawyer meets the Internet

7 January 2014 7:01 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There’s a scene in the premiere of Intelligence that tells you everything you need to know about the show. The evil Chinese guy is trying to intimidate the lovable scientist guy. “Have you ever seen a Chinese M99 Sniper Rifle?” says the villain — played by Will Yun Lee, who CBS clearly has on-call after his similar turn on Hawaii Five-o. “This is the finest weapon in the world. Pinpoint accuracy.”

You’re ready for a speech, something about how the Sniper Rifle is a metaphor for how the villain’s operation is a perfectly-run system guaranteed to stop whatever »
